The Hanna Family of Companies Top Industry Lists of Largest Privately Held Real Estate Brokerage Firms

Pittsburgh, PA (April 4, 2022) – The Hanna Family of Companies has once again been named the #1 privately held real estate brokerage firm in the United States, accordingly to the recently released 2022 RealTrends 500 report and the RISMedia Power Broker Report.

The Hanna Family of Companies is led by Howard Hanna Real Estate Services and includes their partner companies of Allen Tate Realtors, Howard Hanna | Rand Realty, and The F.C. Tucker Company, as an integrated family of real estate companies. Together, they form a strong brand across the East Coast and into the Midwest, reliably serving clients with best-in-class agents and offerings.

By rounding out 2021 with $36.5 billion in closed sales volume and 125,482 closed transaction sides as reported to RISMedia, the Hanna Family of Companies experienced yet another banner year of growth and success. These 2021 closing numbers earned the group a #5 ranking among the lists of the largest real estate brokerage firms.* Both the RealTrends and RISMedia lists are full of Wall Street-funded and financially supported entities, and yet, the nation’s largest family-owned and -operated real estate firm continues to be ranked high among the top firms in the industry.

“As a privately held company, we have made hard decisions and realized the challenges and opportunities along the way,” said Helen Hanna Casey, Chief Executive Officer of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services. “As we continue to grow and evolve to achieve continued success, we realize that investing in our partners, our agents and employees, and the support we provide through innovative technology and marketing services, will allow us to continue to be a differentiator in the industry.”
